According to a study published in PLoS OnE, modified painDETECT scores indicated that 37% of participants with hip OA and 46% of participants with knee OA had possible neuropathic phenotypes.
INDIANAPOLIS—Soccer players who head the ball more often may be more likely to have balance problems than players who do not head the ball as often, according to a preliminary study released today that will be presented at the American Academy of Neurology's Sports Concussion Conference in Indianapolis July 20 to 22, 2018.
The purpose of this systematic review was to unravel these differences and inconsistent findings by evaluating the research on the effectiveness of mobilization and manipulation for chronic non-specific low back pain
UNIVERSITY PARK, PA—When migraine sufferers see the tell-tale squiggly lines, light flashes and blind spots of a migraine aura, they prepare for a migraine. When researchers see the brain image of an aura, they try to figure out what causes it and if there is a way to stop the start of the migraine. Now an international team of researchers has identified the electrical activity specific to the start of migraines and demonstrated a way to stop it in animal experiments.
Osteoarthritis present with earlier worsening of knee structure and poorer patient-reported and physical function measures, including a decline in walking speed, compared with individuals who have a more common, gradual onset of knee OA, according to the results of a longitudinal analysis of data from the Osteoarthritis Initiative published in Arthritis Care & Research. | READ MORE

OTTAWA—Science is that much stronger when diverse ideas are welcomed. When Canada's research community has a say in the development of new programs that support it, our researchers are able to discover and innovate in ways that have a profound impact on our health, environment, economy and communities.
For scientists, pain has long presented an intractable problem: it is a physiological process, just like breathing or digestion, and yet it is inherently, stubbornly subjective—only you feel your pain. It is also a notoriously hard experience to convey accurately to others.
Researchers previously showed that overweight and obese individuals with knee osteoarthritis can reduce pain by 50% and significantly improve function and mobility with a 10% or more weight loss over an 18-month period. The investigators' latest findings, which are published in Arthritis Care & Research, reveal that a 20% or more weight loss has the added benefit of continued improvement in physical health-related quality of life along with an additional 25% reduction in pain and improvement in function.
Hormonal and reproductive factors are correlated with the risk for knee osteoarthritis (OA), an effect that was significant in non-obese women both at early reproductive age and during midlife, according to a study recently published in Arthritis & Rheumatology.
CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA—Researchers from The Sport Science Center at Texas Christian University, Texas Health Sports Medicine, and the University of Wisconsin–La Crosse evaluated the usefulness of biomarker testing in determining the potential extent of brain trauma suffered from repetitive subconcussive head impacts sustained over the course of a college football season. Their findings are reported today in the Journal of Neurosurgery, in the article "Fluctuations in blood biomarkers of head trauma in NCAA football athletes over the course of a season" by Jonathan M. Oliver, Ph.D., and colleagues (https://thejns.org/doi/full/10.3171/2017.12.JNS172035).
